Pumpkins Fight Back

Happy Halloween! The Captain will try to provide a few ghastly, horrific, real-life Halloween-themed downers to bring your mood down a few notches before the throngs of greedy, masked, sugar fueled brats begin incessantly ringing your bell and turn your Sunday night into a living hell.

A farm worker has had to have his foot cut off after becoming tangled in a pumpkin-pulping machine.

John Terpstra, 29, was using the heavy machinery to gather and crush the fruit, which is in peak season, when his right leg became caught in the works.


[F]riends said his leg was too badly injured and surgeons were forced to amputate his foot after the accident on Thursday.
